Fueling Transformational Movements

Pride Foundation’s Community Grants Program fuels transformational movements for equity and justice led by community organizations across the Northwest that are building a better, safer, and more inclusive world for LGBTQ+ people. Our work and grantmaking is focused in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

We are continually evolving our Community Grants Program to be responsive to the needs and opportunities arising in the Northwest, while simplifying our processes and reducing burdens on groups and organizations applying. This is especially true this year, given the significant and ongoing impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities and organizations. 

 

Our Role

As the only LGBTQ+ community foundation in the Northwest, and one of unfortunately few philanthropic institutions intentionally investing in LGBTQ+ communities, we play a critical role for smaller, grassroots, LGBTQ+ led and focused organizations who often do not have the same level of access to institutional funding. By strategically investing in these organizations, we have the opportunity to make a bigger impact on the ecosystem of support for LGBTQ+ people in the Northwest. 

Communities who have been especially harmed by systemic injustices like racism, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, and transphobia have the highest disparities as a result. These same communities are also chronically underinvested in by institutional philanthropy. Focusing our investments and outreach on these communities is an important move to help change these disparities and combat the injustices of these experiences.
